Check Out My Auction Items!

Our Annual Auction will be Saturday night, November 3. The Silent Auction kicks off at 5:30 (come early for the best deals) and the fun lasts throughout the evening. Here are the items that I will be offering:

The Minister in the Kitchen
Number of Spaces: 6
Date: April 2008

Take your life into your own hands as you join Rev. Thom at his Brookside Condo for a 100% home-cooked (Vegetarian) dinner. Thom is no Julia Child and he is certainly no Kristin Leathers. But, he will near-fearlessly don an apron and slave away in the kitchen for you. Nice wine will guarantee you get your money's worth. "Behold, I am doing a new thing." (Isaiah 43:19)
**Warning: Eating raw or undercooked meat or fish may cause food-borne illness. (Just kidding!)

Wholphin Independent Film Night
Number of Spaces: 100+
Date: February 3, 2008

Wholphin is a quarterly DVD magazine of rare and unseen short films published by McSweeney's. The short films range from the silly to the sublime, from the bizarre to the weird. We will gather in Fellowship Hall, enjoy popcorn and soft drinks, and watch selections from the best of Wholphin. Door prizes may include Wholphin merchandise and subscriptions. You've never seen film like this. Perfect for teens too! Go to the Wholphin web-site to preview some of the films.

Juggling Performance
Number of times offered: 1
Date: TBD

Thom the Minister will transform into Thom the Juggler and appear at a child's Birthday Party or other event of your choosing. Included in the performance: Five-ball juggling, flaming torches, machete juggling, and amazing feats of balance.

Juggling Lessons
Number of times offered: 2
Date: TBD

Do you know how to juggle but want to learn some new tricks? Have you always wanted to learn to juggle? I will offer two hours of juggling instruction. Lessons may be 1-on-1 or you may invite friends and make it a group lesson.

KC Brigade Tickets
Date: Spring 2008

Winning bidder will receive a voucher good for two tickets to any Kansas City Brigade (Arena Football League) home game. This year, the Brigade is playing in the brand new downtown Sprint Center. I hounded the good folks at the Brigade corporate office for these tickets, so come and bid for them.
